    Place flyers man, as many as you can. Advertise Advertise Advertise ahahaha! The flyers work, 3 percent return is really good as long as you put out enough.

    Flyers, give a business card to anyone and everyone, word of mouth, and local advertising.

    Hi EmeraldGardens,

    Let all your friends and family know you started your business and give them cards. Spread the word with any organization youmay be affiliated with as well.

    I hope this is a great year for you!
